Ryan Lovett, 7, from Canada passed away after suffering from a severe case of strep throat. His mother, Tamara Lovett, is sentenced to three years in prison Saturday because she did not take him to the doctor.
Tamara was convicted in January of criminal negligence causing death of her son Ryan Lovett, according to reports. “Ryan suffered terribly from this inaction,” Justice Kristine Eidsvik said. “He died an excruciating, unnecessary death.”
Ryan was bedridden at home for 10 days in March 2013. During that time, Lovett gave him dandelion tea and oil of oregano to treat his infection. Ryan's symptoms included swollen lymph nodes, oozing ears and jaundiced eyes at the time of his death, reports said. The infection caused organ failure. Lovett said she thought he had a cold or the flu.
Eidsvik said during the trial that Lovett "gambled away" Ryan's life by treating him herself and not seeking medical help. Lovett admitted during the proceeding that what she did was wrong, and the court acknowledged her grief and suffering, reports said.
